ever happening again, senator. >> that did not satisfy the administration's leading critic, john mccain. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors, who were flown to ramstein the next day, that is a spontaneous demonstration. the american people deserve to know answers. >>> diffusing the debt crisis, the house moving right now to raise the debt limit, but temporarily, and there's a catch. there's always a catch. >> this bill before us is real simple. it says, congress, if you don't do a budget, you don't get paid. >> this linkage is a gimmick, it's a joke, it's not right. it's designed to put people on the spot. >>> playing offense. the nra fights back against the president. >> he's more than willing to demonize his opponents, silence his critics, and slur the nra. >> our special guest, susan o z eisenhower taking on the web ad about the obama daughters. >>> and surprise, even bo obama gets into the act as the first family greets unsuspecting tourists at the white house. with, in fact, a fist bump from the commander in chief. >>
to this shortly -- john mccain and rand paul were tough on her. they were not backing down. >> that's right. republicans were focused on, one, the administration specifically the united nations ambassador susan rice initially in the sunday show appearances, on all five sunday shows that sunday but also an initial discussion about what happened in benghazi, the word was that this was not a terrorist attack, this was a spontaneous protest because of the anti-islam video which of course turns out not to have been the case and a lot senators were focused on why were these talking points false. johnson said dr. rice was purposefully misleading the american public. dr. rice said she was not, she was using the talking points used by the intelligence committee and no effort to mislead. she was providing as much information as she knew at the time. the other information by senator rand paul talking about the lack of accountability, how come nobody was fired. he said if he had been presented at time, and this is somebody who harbors ambitions, he would have relieved secretary clinton of her jobs, spe
remain behind the motives for the attack itself and john mccain was also critical of the secretary in his questioning. take a listen. >> people don't bring rbgs and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations, that's a fundamental. and of course the president continued to say days afterwards, september the 12th, maeld a reference to act of terror. september 12th, too early to know. september 20th on univision, still doing an investigation. september 24th on "the view", still doing an investigation. the president of the united states as late as september 24th, did not acknowledge that this was an act of terror. >> i would urge that you look and read both the classified and unclassified versions of the arb that deals with the questions you and senator johnson are raising the timing and the like. i also hope we're looking forward. libya is still dangerous and still in a very unstable status. >> sir, as the secretary continued to testify, she also made note to say we are in a new reality when it comes to talking about the diplomacy needed for northern africa as well as in the middle east. for libya
by u.s. intelligence officials. just don't tell that to senator john mccain. he may have to switch his anger button to off. >> the american people deserve to know answers and they certainly don't deserve false answers. the answers given to the american people on september 15th by the ambassador of the united nations were false. >> john: that's mccain still trying to win the respect of his own party. they were even more incensed over rice's alleged efforts to mislead the american public during an election year, no less to no apparent logical reason. >> again, we were misled there was supposedly protest and then something sprang out of that. an all the sprang out of that. that was easily ascertainable. that was not the fact and the american people could have known that for days. >> with all due respect the fact is we had four dead americans. whether it was because of a protest or because guys out for a walk and they decided to go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent from ever happeni
committee experience with senator mccain over those years. we had subcommittees. we took it very seriously. we held hearings. we brought people in. we had a three-day markup that was sack crow sank but we had the qdr, where the defense department submitted that and it helped to provide a framework. when i got to the state department, i said, there is nothing like that at the state department. so i started the first ever quad ren yell first ever qdr. you can help me continue that and make the department have to ask the hard questions if you legs late the way the qdr is legs lated for the defense department. secondly, you can help by making sure that the needs we come to you with, like what are the training needs, the budgetary needs, the bureaucratic changes that are needed, that you help support that. and certainly we've talked a little bit about the budget, but getting that transfer authority, if you can help us with the house, it's $1.4 billion, marine security guard detachment, 553 million, we've been closely coordinating with d.o.d., historically marine security guards do not do person
this. the same kind of reaction we're seeing from john mccain because he also is close with chris stevens but he's handling it in a very different kind of way because he's -- he wants -- he's the question asker and hillary clinton is the person who just, you know, again, bears that responsibility. it is clearly weighing very heavily on her. >> secretary of state hillary clinton has taken her seat before the house foreign affairs committee. but we do now have bob bear, the former middle east field officer with us. i wanted to ask you, when do you make of the fact that it has been almost four months, actually over four months and we still don't have anybody in custody responsible for the attack in benghazi. is this a failure of intelligence gathering, a failure of the government in libya to cooperate? what are you hearing? >> well, i think it falls on the shoulders of the libyans to find these people. libya is a chaotic country right now. the attack on algeria, libya played some part -- not at the state, but groups in libya. it is hard to find people when there is no central authori
, congress has refused requests for more money and cut the state department budget. senator john mccain, a critic of the administration's response to the attacks, said clinton's answers were unsatisfactory. >> the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. i hope that they will get them. >> reporter: secretary clinton connected what happened in benghazi to the rise of al qaeda splinter groups in nearby mali and the recent terrorist attack in algeria. she warned the events are linked. instability in north africa has opened a pandora's box of threats against the united states. >> pelley: margaret, thank you. one man who will be called in to deal with those threats is general john allen, and we learned today that president obama will resubmit allen's nomination as commander of nato forces in europe. the pentagon investigated general allen for sending potentially inappropriate e- mails to a florida woman linked to the david petraeus scandal, but yesterday allen was cleared of wrongdoing. the battle over the debt ceilin
, along with lindsey graham and senator mccain and others. in the interim, i urged the administration to act immediately to suspend foreign assistance if the tunisian government permitted in obstructing the investigation. on january 4, i received a tepid response from the acting deputy, assistant administrator for public affairs at usaid, which i submit for the record, it was a bland assurance that the tunisian government was cooperating. was cooperating? five weeks and the f.b.i. had to wait? then the f.b.i. three hours to talk to him? and we gave this government $325 million last year. today i wrote usaid expressing my disappointment that the administrator himself could not respond directly to a member of congress who serves on a committee of jurisdiction and further pointed out what should be obvious, the tunisian government did not cooperate. the tunisian government never sought the aid, u.s. taxpayer money was in jeopardy. they have not faced a single consequence for undermining u.s. national security. i submit the letter for the record. sadly, the failure to respond forcibly and
paul, and this is also a look at -- the faces of the republicans, rand paul, ron johnson and john mccain looked so pathetic. and to me, there's something called decorum. and when rand paul sits there and to the second highest ranking official in our country and someone who has done a spectacular job says i would have had your job, that's pathetic. that's the amateur hour. and that's the republicans. >> willie. >> he's got a right to challenge her on it. he's not supposed to sit there. >> that is nir jtheir job. >> and just celebrate you. >> i would have relieved you of your duty? >> that's an idiot. >> kelly o'donnell, you were up on the hill yesterday. aside from all the fireworks, we saw some good pieces of videotape there. did we learn anything new actually about what happened on september 11th in benghazi? is there any new information to come out of that hearing? >> well, there were some threads and details that were interesting, i thought. secretary clinton talked about the fact that they did not have access to the surveillance video that showed what went on for a period of weeks. i
, rand paul and john mccain for questions and statements they made. >> he choked up at times. she was heated at times in her exchange with ron johnson hillary clinton has done what everybody waited for quite some poert and that was testify on benghazi. bill: that was round one. round two is at. here is jon scott and jenna lee on "happening now." we'll see you tomorrow bill: bill got the team half right. deadly attack on consulate in benghazi libya. i'm jon scott. >> i'm not jenna lee. i'm heather childers heather: lawmakers grilling her on the september 11th raid that left our ambassador chris stevens and three other americans dead. after an independent review blasted the state department, and the steps the obama administration is taking to beef up security at u.s. facilities worldwide. >> as i have said many times, i take responsibility, and nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger and more secure. heather: doug mckelway is live for us on capitol hill with the very latest. doug, we're learning ne
as there is also opposition. remember, some senators, like senator mccain, think this is the right thing to do. i'm told in talking to officials here that president obama believes this is the right thing to do. a number of his advisers believe this is the right thing to do. this is not something that's going to be implemented overnight, of course. there's going to be a lot of thought put into what women are serving in what positions, but this is something that president obama believed certainly in consultation with his defense team was the way to move forward. >> nbc's kristin welker, thank you, kristin. >>> next, why some on president obama's team had second thoughts on using this. stay with us. ♪ america, america god shed his grace on thee ♪ [ construction sounds ] ♪ [ watch ticking ] [ engine revs ] come in. ♪ got the coffee. that was fast. we're outta here. ♪ [ engine revs ] ♪ this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may h
were we misled that there were protests when there weren't? and senator mccain tried to answer this later, brit. he said, look, your answers are are unacceptable to me, because he thought the administration was trying to keep a soft footprint, that we had it, it was under control and they didn't need a bunch of americans troops there, notwithstanding the red cross left benghazi, an attempt on the british ambassador's life and our consulate attacked and a huge hole in the wall from a bomb dropped us in june of 2012, and yet, he believes we were trying to project, like it's all good and that a terrorist planning an attack may not have been consistent with that projection as we wait to hear hillary clinton and opening remarks, your thoughts on that? >> well, it was a forceful argument made by senator mccain and i suspect it will get some play because it was said with some vigor, but the problem with this, megyn, this hearing and we don't know what will happen this afternoon, but i suspect it will be similar, it the infirmties that these congressional hearings normally have and tha

're a device and encouragement to ensure the same success going forward in west africa. >> senator mccain. >> thank you, madam secretary. it is wonderful to see you in good health and as combative as ever. [laughter] we thank you for your outstanding and dedicated service to this nation. we are proud of you. all over the world when i travel, you are viewed with admiration and respect. months after the benghazi tragedy, there are many questions that are unanswered. the answers frankly that you have given this morning are not satisfactory to me. were you and the president made aware of a classified cable from chris stevens that said united states consulate in benghazi cannot survive and the stained assault, numerous warnings about the security were unanswered or unaddressed. it took a cnn reporter looking through the conflict to find chris stevens last warning. when were you made aware of that table? when we you made aware of that attack on the british ambassador and the assassination attempts? and what actions were taken? what was the president's activities during that seven hours period.
